Hepburn for the Home

A udrey Hepburn. Actress, Fashionista, Activist, and Icon. She exuded class and elegance like no other figure I could think of. She’s left us a great legacy of classic fashion and beautiful movies like Charade and Breakfast at Tiffany’s.

Because she’s a personal favorite of mine and her style is one I like to emulate, I thought it’d be fun to take a look at all the home décor that features Audrey. Some of it is charming, some is mass-produced – all of it is pretty sure to add a touch of class if you’re looking to add some to your home or apartment.

Since you’ve all are probably uber familiar (read: uber tired) of that black and white of her eating “breakfast” at Tiffany’s – I’ve taken the time to round up some of the more unique Audrey art available.

Ikea is in on the awesome – check out PJÄTTERYD for $79.99, a 35.5” by 35.5” canvas for your home.

Elloh, aka Ellen Lohse, is an artist on Etsy whose prints are inspired by wonderful movies and television shows. She’s done a whole series inspired by Breakfast at Tiffany’s that you can see below. Each print is extremely reasonable at $35.00 each and they are all signed by the artist. I personally own the kissing in the rain print and it’s fantastic. (Never heard of Etsy? I’ll feature it in an upcoming post.)

Poking around for this article, I also found another great Etsy artist, Miss Brigette, with a slightly different spin on Ms. Hepburn, just as thrifty for $25.00.

 These next pieces of art are actually premium photographic prints by photographer Allan Grant – premium because of the price tag (starting at $99.99 for an 18x24”) and frankly, the quality of the photo itself. These are both from the 28th Academy Awards and feature Audrey and Grace Kelly interacting in the dressing rooms backstage during the ceremony. Simply gorgeous.

If you’re not feeling using an Audrey likeness in your home, you could always work in a quote via wall decal. Check out this gorgeous use of a wonderful quote of hers here – 

And so ends another fun and classy look round the net for excellent home decor.
